This article looks at the effects of teaching contingency management skills to disruptive elementary students on student self-concept and physical educators' behaviors. Research shows that students become unwillingly dependent on teacher control of the classroom because teachers are thought to be the source of classroom control and authority. The students may exhibit inappropriate behavior to resist that control.
